    Hi,

    In the Item Description window of E-Bay, I would like to achieve the effect
    of having the top half of the screen with a white background (to be used for
    normal text) and the bottom half with a black background (so that a
    photo/postcard image will stand out more).

    Is there a simple way of dividing the screen into two halves? Although a
    beginner at html code, I have tried following advice on help pages but
    irrespective of where I put the relevant code, the background is either all
    white or all black.

    Perhaps there is another way to achieve this effect.

    I have no doubt I am missing the obvious but any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Sure, Mike.

    for example, snatch this simple background pic:

    Do NOT link to my pic, snatch and upload to your site, recolor if necessary
    to suit your need
